About Me

[b]Thank you for looking in.[/b]

Published Photographer that loves story-telling and creating images that glimpse other worlds. Often this involves creating digital art work through the image manipulation of my own photography.

I like simple and spontaneous, but at others times enjoy epic location shoots using costumes, props & support crew! I'm always happy to hear from anybody wanting to do something unique or imaginative in any genre.

[b]Paid shoots:[/b] Please don't be afraid to offer me money. My rates are available on request.

[b]TF/CD shoots[/b] Please don't be afraid to ask for TF. I'm happy to work with you on any challenging concept or, if my time permits, to help you update your port.

Oh, and if you see any images in my portfolio that contain any of the following elements, you may [b]shoot me:[/b] Girl wrapped in hazard tape tied to a railway track in front of graffiti festooned wall dressed in a Ballerina outfit on a beach wearing a gas mask!

Hey, no I'm only joking, these hackneyed images are cool, just having some fun. Honestly. But shoot me if you see any.

Here's my Blog address: take a peek.

Best wishes and once again, thank you for looking in.

"So do we pass the ghosts that haunt us later in our lives; they sit undramatically by the roadside like poor beggars, and we see them only from the corners of our eyes, if we see them at all. The idea that they have been waiting there for us rarely if ever crosses our minds. Yet they do wait, and when we have passed, they gather up their bundles of memory and fall in behind, treading in our footsteps and catching up, little by little." - [b]Stephen King - The Girl at the Window[/b].

"There is a fine line between 'wrong' and 'visionary'. Unfortunately you have to be a visionary to see it!"

"Saturate yourself with your subject and the camera will all but take you by the hand." ~ [b]Margaret Bourke-White[/b] (1904-1971)

"I realize more and more what it takes to be a really good photographer. You go in over your head, not just up to your neck." ~ [b]Dorothea Lange[/b] (1895-1965)

'I had the pleasure of shooting with Drew yesterday and ohh my i came away from the shoot so impressed by the talent he has. Gave great direction to get the absolute perfect shot. So easy to get along with!!! Would highly recommend him to any model wanting incredible and creative shots. Got a few shots back so far and more than amazed by them, truly beautiful.' - [b]Laura Slater[/b].

"Worked with Drew after having spoken lots in the past very recently at a photography class he was teaching. He is a wonderful chap, with a keen eye for photographic detail, a super personality and a box full of great props! I felt at ease instantly modelling for him and he had a plethora of knowledge to share with his students, who were also very lovely people!" Read less
